Recall is 1217F but it won't let me post a link. For some reason I can't change my password to something I can remember.

This doubled the pad life from 20k miles to 40 k miles but still that is not right. I think there is a design flaw. Might be something simple as the cable is too tight. Mine was made in Mexico and the build quality is not as good as my wife's CX5 Japanese made car. The pads are pretty thin when new compared to the front and that could be some of the issue. I don't think so because the rotors are starting to get a lip on them which indicates excessive wear. The brakes could also be equalized with too much going to the rear. I have been driving FWD 4 bangers for 30 yrs and never have I seen this.
